Tuxedo Black

Hello. Today is Thursday, it's really, really cold, and this post is going up really quickly because blogger was failing to load up all last night, leaving me with no way to schedule in my post. Sigh. Now I'm sneaking it in with my morning coffee and hoping I don't blunder this up too badly! Instead of posting last night, I watched an apocalyptic movie that I did not like. Dear world, please don't die in 2012 - I just started my style blog and I have so many fun outfits to show you! 






These photos were done with my header in mind. I popped outside to snap a few quick pictures with a landscape setting and a white background, and found myself enjoying both the light and the outfit so much that I just kept going! I didn't think to get a back shot of this dress, but it has the most adorable tuxedo detailing on the rear that falls into beautiful pleats. I love it so much because it can be styled so many ways. A closet staple.




(Dress: Zara, Tights: Hue, Booties: Volatile, Clutch: Vintage, Belt: Thrifted)
